Puchong is dim sum central (at last count, there were at least four dim sum restaurants all located within a couple of blocks at Bandar Puteri alone), but old school Tai Ji Eatery is a deserving standout. The atmosphere is relaxed: tables of old men enjoying their morning pot of bou lei with the day’s papers, doughy buns steaming away in big batches, the staff folding dumplings in the kitchen.
Opened five years ago, this unassuming restaurant is a rare find, serving decent dim sum, from dependable crowd-pleasers (freshly made fish balls, addictively crunchy salad prawns, pork ribs and century egg porridge) to less familiar options (pumpkin dumplings, salted fish buns and even yong tau fu). With all stuffing and dumpling wrappings made in-house, Tai Ji delivers on freshness, taste and texture. Go for the egg tarts (with a wobbly filling and delicately airy pastry crust that breaks upon first bite, some of the best we’ve had) and the signature spicy Szechuan dumplings.
